Weekend Snippets #6

Happy Memorial Day. And thank you to all the men and women who have served our country.

Welcome back to Weekend Snippets.

Here’s the last snippet from the first scene of WYOMING ESCAPE. Mikela Richards is running in a woodsy park when she hears gunfire, sees a man with a gun, finds a dead body and runs away when someone comes out of the woods. She gets back to her car and roars out of the parking lot. This last bit is more than eight sentences, but necessary.


 Wyoming Cover - 4x6 - #2A few blocks away, Mikela pulled up in front of a gas station with a public pay phone. She stared at it for a long minute. Did she dare take the chance? She could ignore the gun shots, but a dead man was different. She’d have to trust the cops couldn’t trace the call to her.  Talking fast and loudly, she reported the murder and the man with the gun. When the operator asked for her name, she hung up. She knew what could happen after you found a body. She knew the police were not her friends.

She knew that a determined cop could make her life hell.


You can find Wyoming Escape on most e-reader sites: Kindle, Nook, Apple, Kobo and Smashwords

  1. Mikela definitely has a secret to hid. An the man with the gun might also not be the murderer. This is all so mysterious…

  2. Oh, I love a girl with a past! She wants to help, but not get involved. Very intriguing snippet.

  3. So why would the police not be her friend? Interesting.

  4. Wow! No wonder she knew what to do in the previous snippets—she has some experience. Nice!

    And let’s hope it wasn’t a crooked cop killing that guy out there, Great tension in this story and this snippet, Kate. I’m really enjoying it. 🙂

  6. Uh-oh. Nice reveal of mystery in her past!

  9. High stakes here for sure! Great snippet.

  10. Great way to end this snippet – Mikela’s aversion to cops, hmm, why indeed?

  11. Well, well, well, I wonder what a determined cop might find out…can’t wait to learn the cause of her distrust!

  12. Well done. Can’t wait to find out more.

  13. Did she touch something at the scene of the crime? Unless her fingerprints are on the dead body, it makes me wonder why she’s so scared of the cops. Maybe she has a record herself 😉 Lots of mystery and questions. Great 8!
